To know God's love, to show God's love

The Last Battle

Revelation 15-16 describe the sequence of events with which God’s wrath against this world will finally be completed. They were pictured for John as seven “bowls of wrath”, which mirror and fulfil the seven trumpets which had begun to be sounded as soon as the Lamb opened the scroll of his final purposes in heaven. And we examine the way John repeatedly describes for us how this world ends in light of Peter’s question,

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be?

2 Peter 3:11

We need to know that this is how the world ends …

  • To remind us that this all must end in war
  • To remind us that this is what the Trumpets of God are warning us of right now
  • And to remind us that what will finally bring both heaven and hell is the Temple of God
